    After years of debate, a casino is coming to Toronto. Great Canadian Gaming Corp. and Brookfield Business Partners recently announced a partnership to upgrade the OLG Slots at Woodbine to a full casino and entertainment/hotel complex.

    With plans for a “city within a city” set to run on a 22-year lease, the development is causing concern among some who worry that it could steal some of Niagara Falls’ thunder. However, Niagara Falls’ tourism initiatives shouldn’t be counted out just yet — they have a few new offerings on the horizon.

    Falls council against casino theatre proposal

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Falls city council voted against a proposal that would see a 5,000-seat entertainment theatre built above the bus area at the back of Fallsview Casino.

    Politicians backed a staff report recommending they don’t support an amendment to the site-specific development agreement, as requested by Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, which would allow the theatre to go five metres higher than currently permitted.

    Both staff and council are concerned the proposal would obstruct views of the falls for nearby hotels.
